Moving To Yenagoa by souljaboi51(m): 7:56pm On Jul 04, 2018
Hello everyone. I need your help especially from those who live in and know Yenagoa.

I will be relocating to Yenagoa for work and i dont know anything about the place as i am born and bred in lagos. Can anybody give me tips on living in Yenagoa. The Dos and Donts. Cost of living, house rent and all that. Availability of electricity, the whole lot. I heard the cost of living is quite high. Kindly enlighten me as i want to be prepared. Thanks everyone.

Mods please help me. DisGuy, justwise

Yenagoa is relatively cheap or expensive. Depends largely on your income. If you earn within 70 - 100, you should be able to fair quite well. There are new fresh apartments around Agudama, Akenfa, Akenpai, Edepie, Opolo by expressway, Azikoro. 150 - 200k should get you a clean 1-bedroom (room an parlour apartment in Agudama or Akenfa. Please avoid Ekeki, Obele junction, Ovom - these are flood-prone areas and cult-relate criminal activities are on the high side in those areas. Raw food sturvs could be expensive sometimes. Transportation is also expensive, but less traffic jams.

Social and night life is just there - hotels, few bars and car wash restaurants here and there. Most of the ladies are raz and sometimes dirty, which makes them cheap. Cleans ones hardly come by, except visitors and non-residents.

Generally, Bayelsa are very welcoming to strangers. They love easy-life.

Thanks alot. I have been informed that i will be living in kpansia. I heard the room and parlour is 500k while a self con is 300. Do you know if that is that a good area? security and flood wise

Kpansia is in the heart of the town, so the high rent is understandable. But if you have your way, Agudama, Akenpai, Edepie is way cheaper between 200 - 300k for room & parlour.

Security wise, yenagoa as a whole is volatile, but kpansia area is manageable. Don't know about flooding, but the topography of kpansia is better to than other flood-prone areas.
